British Science WeekBritish Science Week 2022 runs from the 11 – 20th March 2022. The theme for the year is growth and a poster competition kicks it off. Schools may enter up to five posters, the rules, etc. are all clear on the linked page.

The full British Science Week 2022 activity packs are here! The theme of the packs, and this year’s poster competition, is ‘Growth’, so the packs are full of fantastic activities looking at all sorts of growth, including buildings, eco-friendly behaviours, animals, and even how we can grow plants on Mars!”(British Science Week)

Schools can download the packs, created in partnership with UK Research and Innovation, from the British Science Week website. The packs are available for Early Years and Primary aged pupils.

“The packs encourage young people to think about growth how it affects their lives, and to explore science in the world all around us.” (

There is lots of help on the site about how to run an event on a budget. In addition, there is a pack that families can download – this information could be sent home in a newsletter.

There is also a  ‘how to’ guides page for step-by-step instructions on how to organise an event,  find a presenter, how to arrange publicity, and where to find funding.  It is also possible to apply for a grant.
